This should get you in shape to start the new year with perhaps a resolution or two fewer than usual. It's a leisurely climb near Lexington Reservoir. Take Hwy 17 South, exit at Bear Creek, go right to cross over the freeway, turn right and park soon in the big lot on your left. Please plan to ride with the group and take regroups. If anyone wants to add on Aldercroft Heights or Black, they are optional, with additional miles. 29-12-2014 10:00:00 29-12-2014 11:00:00 6 ACTC: Tortoises Climbing Hills 10 mi, 5 LM : This should get you in shape to start the new year with perhaps a resolution or two fewer than usual.
